It’s been a long wait for the next round of the Livery Dole Mitsubishi Winter League, writes John Barnard.

It is difficult to remember such a continuous period of wet weather, but fortunately, there is now a hint of spring in the air so hopefully, golfers can get back to doing what we do best.

On Sunday, the format was a three man team event off three quarters handicap.

Leading the field were Alan Malcolm, Simon Jones and Lee Wenham with a nett score of 55. The course was certainly not playing kindly for the competitors! There was no run on the ball and the greens were a bit slow and bumpy as you would expect after a period of inclement weather. Birdies were at a premium so their birdie on the seventh hole (with a shot) meant a nett two and made all the difference enabling the win.

There were two teams with a nett score of 57. Sean Murphy, Graham Davies and Pat Kenny had a marginally better back nine to edge ahead into second place, in front of Graham Rogers, Kevin Howe and Jeremy Holden.
